The Juilliard School
Juilliard established this country's standard for performing arts education in music (1905), adding dance (1951), and as a Lincoln Center founding member, adding acting (1968). More recently, Juilliard added programs in playwriting, jazz, Historical Performance, and in 2012, an MFA in drama. Partner programs explore Juilliard’s resources, as with the Metropolitan Opera's Lindemann Young Artist Development Program; faculty appointments such as NY Philharmonic Music Director Alan Gilbert; and shared supervision of The Academy with Carnegie Hall, Weill Music Institute, and NYC Department of Education.
Juilliard’s 800 students come from 43 US states, and 40 foreign countries. They participate in 700+ annual performances, in five theaters inside Juilliard’s newly-renovated building, plus Alice Tully, Avery Fisher, and Carnegie halls.
Julliard perform Saturday Aug. 30 at 1:30 p.m., Sunday, Aug. 31 at 1:30 p.m. and Sunday Sept. 7 at 11:00 a.m.
